Summary
Daily life is like a roll of the dice - full of promise and events that may turn out to be accidental, lucky or unlucky, significant or trivial. But how random are they? What are the chances of something extraordinary happening - and what perils can we avoid by understanding chance's role in our fortunes? And speaking of fortunes, how much are financial markets or gambling truly down to chance, rather than talent? This book brings together some of New Scientist's sharpest minds to explore these tantalising questions
